This has been irregular, but I need to be better at this recent idea I had where I talk about the other bands and artists on ZAP Records. That’s the label that I’m affiliated with, for those who didn’t know.
This band is To Live As Sons. They are a hardcore band based in West Virginia. This quintet has two original members from Zao, who are a legendary band in the hardcore and metalcore scenes. It’s crazy how I’m labelmates with them, but they make some good music.
It’s their newest song “Get the Horizon”. It was originally on the ZAP Records Vol. 3 compilation album, but the song is now released as a single.
By the way…it’s FREE (or pay-what-you-want)! That should save you some money on Black Friday. Just sayin’.
Feel free to check them out.
What’s up, everyone?
ZAP Records has released their third compilation in their Friends Series. There are all kinds of bands including some of my own labelmates from all over the world releasing current and brand new exclusive tunes including this guy! I debuted a new song called “Emancipating Spark” which will be only on the compilation and nowhere else.
What are you waiting for? It’s a free download with 15 songs on it with numerous genres represented.

I thought I would try something new for the Ospreyshire page. It’s called Friendship Friday where I cross-promote my friends who do creative things such as music, literature, art, film, etc.
For my first #FF project, I’d like to tell you about The Old-Timers. They are a hardcore band based in South Africa and Scotland. I’ve met their lead singer Dave at the final Cornerstone Festival back in 2012 and he was such a legit person. We’ve been talking online ever since and I found out years ago that he was in this band. They’ve been making some great albums and EPs over the past few years. I also want to thank Dave for giving me a platform with my Ospreyshire project after falling out of the music scene for years.
Thank you, The Old-Timers!
It’s been a while since I posted on here. I really need to get better at that. Anyways, I debuted a new song for a compilation entitled Kill The Ill. It’s for Shawn Browning AKA Wretched, the lead singer from Grave Robber. He’s been diagnosed with nodes on his vocal cords with prevent him from singing. Even though I don’t personally now him, I have seen his band live before which really fun. No one should ever have to be sick like that. The proceeds from this compilation go straight to his medical bills. That’s $10 for the entire album.
Come on. $10 for a 92-track album. Let’s do the math here. It’s $0.10869565 per song and it’s for a great cause!
My friends in The Old-Timers, Desiring Dead Flesh, and Their Throats Are Open Tombs have contributed, too.
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on this blog. My apologies. I really need to increase my discipline on posting things more often.
Anyways, I wanted to let you all know that ZAP Records just released a new compilation on their Bandcamp page that’s free or pay-what-you-want. It features Incomplete Specters from my debut EP which you can also find through ZAP Records or my own Bandcamp page. This compilation features my labelmates such as Willem Samuel, The Festal Shout, The Straight Suits, George Hugo, To Live As Sons, The Jim Achen Band, Captive Portal, and The Old-Timers! There are even non-ZAP artists like Anti-World System [Grrr Records], The Hoax [Thumper Punk Records], Praiser, Blast From Oblivion [SkyBurnsBlack Records], and False Idle [Thumper Punk Records]. There are some album cuts mixed in with exclusive songs you can’t find anywhere else.
Download it and listen to the mix of punk, experimental, hardcore, and folk tracks.
